Menu Plan Monday for July 23rd.
Last week's menu plan was a bit of a bust.
I was so busy canning carrots, green beans and spaghetti sauce that I forgot to make dinner.
Yep. Mom of the year here. Just as I was finishing up a batch in the canner, I would hear a little voice saying "I'm hungry. Can we eat?". Oops. Remind me to put something in the crock pot next time I say I'm going to can. Thanks.
I ended up serving oatmeal one night and scrambled eggs and toast the other.
On the plus side, I have a head start on my canning this year.
Here's what I'm planning to cook this week:
Monday: Roast chicken, sweet potatoes and green beans
Tuesday: Pancakes and eggs
Wednesday: Steak, twice baked potatoes and corn on the cob.
Thursday: Slow cooker Hawaiian Meatballs, rice and carrots
Friday: Grilled Tilapia, salad and fruit
Saturday: Pizza night
I've recently implemented Sunday as leftover day. I made sure we had leftovers during my pantry challenge in January and it was great. One night off from cooking and I threw very little away when I cleaned out the fridge each week.
